Good place to work
I’ve worked for the company for 4 years and started 5 years ago for my placement for college. I was then offered a job working as a support worker at Kirkland view. I have being a support worker and also interim team leader. I have enjoyed my time there. Each day is different some days are great and some days have challenges but so does every day life. The current manager is very supportive and great at what he does.

Miserable staff
The staff are miserable here and make out like the job is hard when it really isn’t. You work 7-3 or 3-10 very easy hours and the people you support are generally easy but the staff think they’re working the hardest job in the world. There’s nothing difficult about helping someone shower and dress and then feeding them. The place is very understaffed and constantly use agency’s to fill in for staff. The people from agency’s are never trained and often get caught stealing from service users. Agency staff are also incompetent of everything. The manager where I work is the laziest human I think I have ever met in my life, he leaves most tasks to the team leader who is clearly very stressed all the time, I done know why he hasn’t quit yet! The pay is terrible but that’s social care for you. If you’re thinking of becoming a support worker, don’t do it your mental health isn’t worth it!

Bullying Culture and Poor Management
I worked here for 5 months as a team leader, it was the most traumatic few months. I have never worked in a place that I was panicked every time the regional manager called. The team were great, and too the clients. Unfortunately, it was majorly let down by higher management.
